Weston Kincaid was my first…everything.
My brother’s best friend should have come with a warning label. The man was a cautionary tale and we were the ill-fated cliché. The star quarterback to my loner art geek. But I didn’t listen. Not to the warnings. Not to my instincts. I fell, and I fell hard.
Then he was gone. In the blink of an eye, I went from loving him to hating him.
A decade and a lifetime later, he’s back. Only instead of being the star jock, he’s now a surgeon. A sexy, irresistible surgeon who happens to save my best friend’s life. And as if all that isn’t bad enough, he has it in his gorgeous, arrogant head that we should pick up where we left off.
Little does he know, I’m not the same girl he left behind.

I feel him kneel down until his face is close to mine. “Josh is my patient, Aria, and I take my job very seriously.” I turn back to him. There is something in his voice that compels me to. “But seeing you again…” He trails off, his eyes searching mine. “Is it too much if I say I’ve thought about you over the years? Wondered about you.” My breath hitches as his fingers come up, tracing the lines of my cheek until they’re diving through my hair, cupping the back of my head. I feel like I’m flying. The way he’s staring into me makes me feel weightless. “I know it’s been a long time, but it doesn’t feel that way, does it?” I shake my head, unable to verbalize just what this is. “It feels like you just climbed out of my bedroom window.”
“It does.” His thoughts echo mine from just a few hours ago. My voice is quiet, the sound getting absorbed into the din of Josh’s machines and hospital doings. His head dips down to catch my words, his face inches from mine now. His proximity is too much. I can’t stand it. I have no idea how to react to it.
“I can’t believe I’m seeing you again after all this time.”
I swallow so hard. He has no idea. He was my first everything. Including my first love. I’ve since compared every single man to him. Including Drew. Who also works in this hospital as a doctor. They probably know each other. I bet they do. Drew works in the emergency department and Wes is a trauma surgeon. That thought twists my stomach for some reason.
My eyes trail along the muscles of his arms. The sleeve of his scrub top looks like it could tear any moment. “You’re bigger than I remember,” I comment and then instantly cringe. Me and my mouth. I swear, it’s like it goes on total disconnect from my brain whenever I get nervous. He laughs, dropping his forehead to mine. And even though this should probably be considered weird or out of place, it’s not. It feels like the most natural thing in the world. Probably because he’s done it dozens of times before.
“Aria,” he whispers against me, his sweet breath tickling my lips. “Am I making you nervous?”
I both love and hate that he remembers my little quirk. But then again, I couldn’t shut up before he gave me that first ever kiss on my roof. Or while he was undressing me that first time months after that. And definitely not when he began to talk while he was first inside me. It’s amazing the guy stuck it out to the conclusion.
“Yes,” I admit. “You always have.”
“In a bad way?” Like he doesn’t know.
“In a good way. In a fun way.”
“A fun way.” He smirks, testing the words. “Is that all I am to you?”
“Well.” I laugh because I can’t help it. “Considering I haven’t seen you in a freaking decade, I can’t say what you are to me.”
